It's our 50th Special Edition! So this was supposed to be the recording of the last ever panel at JoeCon. Well, after the Hasbro panel on Saturday, EVERYTHING changed! So instead of turning out the lights, we're going to see you next year! Mike Irizarry hosts and is joined by Joe "Coin Flip" Colton, Chris "ROM" McLeod, Dave "My Hair IS Combed" Tree, and a voiceless (yet extremely smug) Gary Godsoe. They get a chance to talk to Brian Savage on how the new two year deal with Hasbro materialized and how Orlando quickly took shape. We also hear from Fub Pub's Lanny Latham and we present a special award to Noted Author James Kavanaugh. Since Gary had no voice, he was our roving mic for some Q&A with the audience. The attendees had some great questions including our thought on how the #savegijoe campaign may have helped (or not helped) Hasbro's decision to extend the contract with Fun Pub for another two years. Lastly, what live show isn't complete without a visual gag, in an homage to the Colts-Broncos 1988 Halloween Monday Night Football Game, all of the hosts were equipped with Justin Bell masks!
Hey, no one said it was going to be pretty!
There may be only TWO more JoeCon's left, so don't miss your chance! We better see you next year in Orlando!!
